Cornelius Homes for Sale

In northern Mecklenburg County, along the picturesque shores of Lake Norman, the city of Cornelius, North Carolina, is an excellent place to live in the Charlotte Metro Area. Cornelius was founded in 1893 and was originally inhabited by cotton farmers. The community was named after J.B. Cornelius, an investor who helped establish a cotton mill in the town, which was eventually incorporated in 1905. Years later, the Catawba River was dammed and the state’s largest man-made freshwater lake was created, Lake Norman. The creation of Lake Norman led to further development in Cornelius and expanded the town’s options for recreational activities while contributing to its scenic beauty. Today, Lake Norman provides seventy miles of lakeside property in the city, which is home to nearly twenty-nine thousand residents.

Among the many advantageous features of Cornelius, it encompasses ten lovely public parks, and Jetton Park is one of those ten. Situated on Lake Norman, the park comprises one hundred and four acres with a small beach, lots of trees, tennis courts, a picnic area, and a walking trail. Another lakefront park, Ramsey Creek Park, offers sand volleyball courts, a children’s playground, picnic areas, and opportunities for fishing and boating. The sixty-six-acre Bailey Road Park also possesses picnic areas and a children’s playground, but it also encompasses several athletic facilities. Beyond the lovely parks, Cornelius also has a spectacular golf course known as The Peninsula Club which features an eighteen-hole championship course with stunning views of the lake. In addition to the course, The Peninsula also encompasses fantastic shared amenities and lovely Cornelius condos and waterfront real estate.
